Answer

Instruct the caregivers of patients to minimize potential contact irritants, which may include cloth or synthetic diapers, paper napkins, plastic pants, and halogenated corticosteroids.

Emphasize to the caregivers of patients the importance of maintaining an intact skin barrier, gently cleansing the diaper area, and protecting the skin from additional trauma.
